Your Co-op Broadband understands the growing need for reliable and fast internet for businesses operating from home. Find out why 100-900Mbps Ultrafast broadband plans are perfect for supporting a thriving small business at home.

The Demands of a Small Business at Home

Running a business from home involves a variety of internet-dependent tasks. This includes video conferencing with clients and colleagues, uploading large files, accessing cloud storage, running online marketing campaigns, and more. A smooth and dependable internet connection is essential to the lifeblood of a home-run business.

Slow internet speeds can lead to frustrating lags, buffering delays, and even dropped connections – all of which can significantly impact your productivity and customer satisfaction. Imagine missing a crucial detail in a call due to a stuttering video, or delays in sending urgent proposals or documents because of sluggish upload speeds. These issues can damage your professional image and hinder your ability to compete effectively.

Differences between our Ultrafast Broadband speeds

Your Co-op Broadband offers Ultrafast speeds at 4 different Mbps to ensure your home has a speed just right for you. The higher the Mbps, the faster your internet will be and the more devices your broadband can cope with at once.

Here are our speed offerings and the differences in speed when downloading a 1GB file:
  • 100Mbps: 1 minute 20 seconds
  • 200Mbps: 50 seconds
  • 500Mbps: 20 seconds
  • 900Mbps: 11 seconds
All of our Ultrafast speeds are far faster than the UK average, though the specific demands of your small home business will likely guide you to a certain speed. We recommend using 100-200Mbps if you only have 2-3 workers at your home-based business, though consider 500-900Mbps if you have more workers or have very high internet demands.

The Perfect Fit for Your Home Business

Along with Ultrafast speeds, you can be looked after by our award-winning UK customer service team, recognised by Feefo for 5 years running. 

Not to mention all of our home broadband packages are climate-positive so you will be reducing your carbon footprint and planting a tree each month. Find out more about how this is made possible with our climate impact partners Ecologi.
